How peroxisomes arise



How peroxisomes arise



Traffic 1(6): 465-473



Peroxisomes are formed by the synthesis and assembly of membrane proteins and lipids, the selective import of proteins from the cytosol, and the growth and division of resultant organelles. To date, 23 proteins, called peroxins, are known to participate in these processes. This review summarizes recent progress in peroxin characterization and examines the underlying molecular mechanisms of peroxisome biosynthesis.
